Last month we saw the dancefloor packed out right ‘til stumps – the sounds of Jamaican horns and whistles amplified throughout the Gasometer Hotel and vintage reggae, rocksteady and ska tunes cranking all night long. It just keeps getting better and better – so now we’re back to do it all over again as Jamaica Jump-Up returns for her sixteenth outing on Saturday, July 16!
This month PBS 106.7FM’s Jamaica Jump-Up falls on the final night of the City of Yarra’s Leaps and Bounds Music Festival – so we’re banding together to throw one big closing night party.
Local rocksteady and early reggae luminaries The Moonhops are back in full force to hit the stage for a live set for the occasion. Joining them will be PBS DJs Mohair Slim (Blue Juice), Stryka D (formerly Break The Chain) and Miss Goldie (Boss Action) plus Fabulous Fez and Miss Fee with 100% vinyl selections. Making a mighty return to the mic for MC duties will be the one and only Kilmarnock Steve.
Get on down to the Gaso nice and early to get warmed up before we move the fire to the dancefloor. 9pm-3am.
